The Last Precious Flowers


I live only a kilometre from Lake Ontario, and benefit  from the mild weather that results from this proximity. Even now at the end of November we have experienced only a few light frosts and can still enjoy the last few flowers that survive the cold nights. 
The roses are the most dogged survivors and despite the fact that they have lost much of their foliage, they continue to bloom. 
It is only a question of time, of course, and winter will take hold and force these hold outs into dormancy.  In the meantime we are enjoying these last precious blooms.

Those are some really pretty roses! Can't believe it's almost winter already. Anyway, I've nominated you for a Beautiful Bloggers award and linked to your blog!

Love those November roses, and you have quite a bounty of them. The lingering foliage on my 'New Dawn ' is covered with blackspot -- and it hardly ever gets blackspot! But a few frilly blooms are still hanging in.

Hi Helen,
What an Fall we've been having, after several frosts and a dusting of snow, there is still a lot of life left in the garden.
